Calendar

Ben Maltz Gallery hosts an Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon inside the current exhibition Anna Craycroft: Tuning the Room, Saturday, April 15, 12-4pm. Join us in editing and creating articles about significant, yet under-represented subjects and figures and add your voice to this collective resource!

The gallery will provide a list of suggested topics and some research materials, but participants are encouraged to write and edit articles on any subjects of their choosing. All levels are welcome, so those new to Wikipedia can learn the basics and begin editing. We will provide a short training session at 12pm and assistance from experienced editors will be available throughout the day. We ask that participants bring their own laptops and chargers if possible. This event is free and all are welcome.

Please be sure to create a Wikipedia account prior to arriving at the event: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ACreateAccount&retur...
